Vine launches new app for Windows 10 PCs and tablets

Twitter's popular social video service Vine is now available for Windows 10 PCs and tablets, expanding the app beyond its previous mobile confines. If you're a fan of taking in the often-hilarious videos 6 seconds at a time, you'll now be able to kick back and meander through your feed from the comfort of your Windows 10 machine of choice.

Those who use the mobile app will be able to find all of the same features in the new PC and tablet app as well. You can venture through channels split up by category, check out trending vines and more. And on the UI side, you'll be able to check out Live Tiles, and you can even pin your favorite channels and accounts to your Start menu. And of course, if you want to share your own Vines, Vine lets you easily drag and drop videos from your desktop into the app.

All told, the Windows 10 Vine app looks pretty slick, and it's definitely worth checking out. If you'd like to give it a shot, you can download Vine for your PC or tablet at the Windows Store link below.

  • What about mobile? :(
  • Really?? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Seriously??????
  • What?
  • Lol. This is in addition to the already existing and popular app on mobile. If you cared enough about Vine to seriously ask that, then you'd already know this.
  • Lol. This article is about the UWP version of Vine for Windows 10, so that's what I am referring to, not the 8.1 app.
  • What about it? It's there if you want it lol
  • I'm talking about a W10 version not the current 8.1 app
  • You did this on purpose right?
  • He's right, we need a W10M version
  • Yeah, UWP without mobile for an app like this seems a bit curious. Concerned if that becomes a trend...
  • The current mobile app is a Windows 10 UWP app. If you look at the app in the Windows store, notice at the bottom it says "mobile device" and "PC." Likewise, if you look at the Store app entry on mobile (assuming you're running Windows 10 Mobile), you'll see it says specifically that it's designed for Windows 10.
  • Clearly isn't the same app, different versions and different layout. Also Twitter directly said that they don't have anything to say about Mobile for now and users can still enjoy the 8.1 version. Windows Central app
  • Niceee.. Another one is in .. Hopefully it means more to come Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • I hope Twitter brings these same app to mobile, the WP8 one is meh. Nice to see on PCs though! Windows Central app
  • new Twitter is already on mobile.
  • Err ... I'm talking about Vine. Windows Central app
  • He's talking about Vine... Sent from my Toaster Oven (Lumia Icon)
  • The Vine mobile app already is a Windows 10 UWP app. Look at its page on the Store. Assuming you're running Windows 10 Mobile, you'll get the Windows 10 version of the app. It say right there on the page that it's designed for Windows 10.
  • This was unexpected. I am happy people believe in the UWP platform.
  • How is it UWP? Its on regular W10 for PC and tablet lol. Its not on mobile.
  • Last time I checked they already had a mobile app so... Posted from the future
  • My vine app got updated today to this new version, it looks amazing - feature parity with andriod and iOS.
  • It's still uwp. I don't even think there is an option for developing a Windows 10 app that is not Universal. That's the beauty of uwp, even if it's not optimized for mobile right now they can always do it in the future.
  • Expect me to Vine more often now!
  • Is mobile under curse or something?? Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • That's very good news ^^ Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Will this get converted to mobile? As a uwp?
  • It is, Mobile got updated to version on my 950XL
  • Is there a reason why Vine on mobile crashes/resets phone when u open the camera to make a vine? I want the same damn vine work on mobile too.
  • I'd like a Periscope app rather than Vine
  • Agreed. Hopefully its in the pipeline though
  • They did Twitter and Vine, it's really Periscope time. Even though the first two already had apps for Windows Phone... Maybe they waited forW10M to develop a Periscope app, who knows! Let's hope for the best!
  • Resizing the app does give you a mobile view. So I think we should expect an update for the Mobile version soon. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Resizing the Vine UWP does NOT give a mobile view, the content may relocate, but none of the navigational elements change. Resize any other UWP app which has a mobile version as well and you will see certain elements relocate/transform, the Twittter app for example. Twitter hasn't created a mobile UI for this Vine app yet. But an update for that will likely come.
  • But then again a well thought out simple app shouldnt change the navigation options if possible.... the benefit is the mobility of experience. there nothing wrong as long as the screen realestate is used effectively. look at vine search 2 columns to 5 and navigation consistent. multi-panel apps (like mail) sure but its hardly a defining requirement .          
  • Hopefully they update the version on W10 mobile too. The current app starts to slow down significantly once you've been in it for a few minutes, at least on my 950. Restarting the app solves it though.
  • try 6sec  
  • Wow! This is greeeeraaaaat!
  • I have tried Vine ..... It's not for me.
  • Thank-you for participating in this conversation
  • Cool stuff. Keep up the good work. Next in line: Periscope
